Winter Curry & Couscous

For an easy curry on a weeknight you can't go past this.

I don't slave over a mortar and pestle for hours...... to tell you the truth - I just can't be bothered too!
This is a basic curry that tastes delicious & is hassle free.

You'll need:
1 medium sweet potato, peeled and chopped into 2cm cubes
1 small brown onion, peeled & finely chopped
1 cup green lentils
1 1/2 cups boiling water
270ml can of coconut cream
2 tablespoons red curry paste
1 teaspoon curry powder
Cous cous & snow peas to serve

Prepare the couscous per packet directions - add a teaspoon of curry powder and stir to combine.
Pour the lentils into a container with a lid. Add the boiling water & let sit for 15 mins.
Warm a frying pan. Add the onion & lightly brown with a water sautee.
Add the chopped sweet potato & stir for 3 minutes.
Add the lentils WITH the water that was used for soaking.
Add the coconut cream & the curry paste. Stir until all ingredients are well combined.
Bring to the boil, and then turn the heat down to low & simmer with a lid on for 20 mins.
Most of the liquid will be absorbed by then & the sweet potato will be softened, as will the lentils.

Serve over the prepared couscous with steamed snow peas.
